As President Muhammadu Buhari ordered all members of his cabinet and appointees vying for electoral offices to resign on or before Monday, May 16, 2022, a few of them have started throwing in the towel. Among early resignees were the minister of Science, Innovation and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, who is a presidential aspirant under the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the South East geopolitical zone, and his counterpart in education, the minister of state for Education, Mr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, also a presidential aspirant under APC from the same zone.
The presidential order came at Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by the President at the Council Chambers of the State House, Abuja.
Minister of information, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this to State House correspondents shortly after the meeting.
Cabinet members affected include Ministers of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio; Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Science, Technology and Innovation, Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba; Justice minister and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
